First pic is of some hardcore jeepers hard at it.
Finished up the main section of the rear bumper this morning. Ran a sanwhiching strip for the skid plate and bumper mounts.
I wish they were my welds but they aren't.

I like it, ALOT of people as about it
It has a skid that goes from the bottom of bumper to rad support which i really like
Its sturdy but i would like to see the fenders wings a little thicker but once my boatside to bumper tube fender gets tied in that will be solved
Great fitment, welds are clean
Gives a much better approach angle than the arb
The shackle bars run back into the frame rail and the bumper bolts to the bars with decent spacing which makes it solid. I havent put it through any major abuse yet but the guy i boight it from wheeled it and i had zero fitment issues
